For the week of 10 September 2017
Disappointment as a motivator.
Raidho is the half-month stave through 13 September. Ehwaz reversed is the intuitive stave, and Wunjo reversed indicates Nature’s message to us. Read right to left is Raidho, Ehwaz reversed, then Wunjo reversed.

The half-month rune is set by the runic calendar, and governs for a tad over two weeks (a fortnight). The intuitive stave (meaning, I draw it blind) indicates the life force most available to us, which brings the focus of the half-month rune into sharper focus for the present week. It suggests how we can handle these energies. The planetary stave (also a blind draw) indicates the state and needs of the planet, and where noted, of Nature, well beyond the earthly sphere. If you’re curious about how I do the cast every week, catch a couple of Instagram videos I do explaining the intention behind The Weekly Rune, and what makes it different from other ways of casting.
Last week Raidho ushered in the middle factor in the holy formula of manifestation of the first aett. The truth-speaking influence of Ansuz brought the power to help us focus what we really mean, so that when we say it to the world we know it’s exactly what we meant. This second week with Raidho, presents some challenges to our equation.
Soothsaying + Storytelling = Meaning
Ansuz + Raidho = Kenaz
Reversed, Ehwaz points to not going deeply enough into the dynamic at hand. Whatever is on the storyboard to manifest, don’t let up, now. We’ve laid the ground work, we’ve done some really gritty digging and mining of exactly what the spellsong should be. Stay with it. Don’t balk at the deeper internal work that’s needed.
Many read Wunjo reversed as the mere lack of joy. It’s sadness, the dominoes not falling into the pattern we arranged them to. Just as brightstave this rune is sought out in almost every cast, its reversed tone is as leveling. Even when this stave comes up with regard to a job, relationship, or some external dynamic. it reflects disappointment we feel in ourselves. When we are faced with disappointment, we are faced with the fact that our best effort didn’t yield the result we wanted, our most empowered rendition of our heartsong fell flat. Reversed, Wunjo is about when we ignore or in some way deny our gut instinct, our deepest intuition, and facing the fallout of that truth.
Wunjo reversed is Nature’s memo to us this week, that we can self-correct. We can realize the limitations of our process and stretch beyond them, adapt. As my guide told me in Gift of the Dreamtime, “There is no such thing as failure, only infinite opportunity to become ready.’ Everything is a beginning. That doesn’t mean we get to bypass the emotional aspects of what’s happened, or the real-life ramifications it may have. It means it’s our duty not to get stuck in them.
